1 Nervous System Organization PNS and CNS Chapters 8 and 9 Peripheral Nervous System (PNS) connects CNS to sensory receptors, muscles and glands Central Nervous System (CNS) control/integrating center brain + spinal cord Peripheral Nervous System Nerves Rapid Communication Consists of: 12 pairs cranial nerves 31 pairs spinal nerves axons of many neurons bundled together transmit signals between brain or spinal cord and other body regions Peripheral Nervous System Sensory (Afferent) convey impulses from sensory receptors to CNS Afferent (sensory) neurons Motor (Efferent) convey impulses away from CNS to periphery Efferent (motor) neurons Motor Component Somatic Nervous System (Voluntary) conduct impulses from CNS to skeletal muscles Autonomic Nervous System (Involuntary) convey impulses from CNS to smooth muscle, cardiac muscle and glands 1

2 Somatic Nervous System Structure Autonomic Nervous System Structure Single motor neuron cell leading from the CNS directly to the muscle Cell body of motor neurons located in CNS Two neurons involved in efferent pathway (CNS to effector) 1rst (preganglionic) has cell body in CNS synapses with 2nd in the autonomic ganglion 2nd (postganglionic) sends signal from auton. gang. to the effector organ Sympathetic and Parasympathetic Divisions Sympathetic (thoracolumnar) dominates in stressful situations prepares body for activity ('Fight or Flight ) adrenergic effects (use norepinephrine) Parasympathetic (craniosacral) dominates during relaxed situations precise control over the body cholinergic effects (use acetylcholine) Sympathetic vs. Parasympathetic Effects Organ Sympathetic Parasympathetic Heart increases HR decreases HR Blood vessels to visceral organs constrict dilate Blood vessels to heart + skeletal muscle dilate constrict Digestive tract decreases motility increases motility Central Nervous System Spinal Cord Control and integration Consists of brain spinal cord Links brain and PNS Controls some involuntary functions Protected by vertebral column 31 pairs of spinal nerves Sensory Component Motor Component 2

3 Spinal Cord Structure Spinal Cord Structure Dorsal Root = sensory Dorsal root ganglion = afferent cell bodies Ventral Root = motor Roots join to form spinal nerve Interneurons White Matter = axons (myelin) found in outer layer Gray Matter = primarily cell bodies, dendrites found in inner layer Tracts of interneuron axons carry information between spinal nerves and brain Ascending tracts carry sensory information up to the brain Descending tracts carry response information from brain to motor neurons Spinal Reflexes Spinal cord alone can respond to some stimuli Reflex - simple, stereotyped response to a stimulus Brain (100 billion) neurons grey matter mostly on outside (cortex) four fluid-filled chambers (ventricles) composed of sections: Prosencephalon (forebrain) telencephalon (Cerebrum) diencephalon (Hypothalamus and Thalamus) Mesencephalon (midbrain) Rhombencephalon (hindbrain) metencephalon (cerebellum, pons) myelencephalon (medulla oblongata) Telencephalon (Cerebrum) Cerebral Lobes Largest part of brain 80% total brain wt Cerebral Hemispheres (L and R) connected by corpus callosum Surface = cerebral cortex most of the grey matter of the cerebrum Deep folds (sulci) in between convolutions (gyri) Cortex divided into paired lobes Parietal Frontal Temporal Occipital Insula Each has distinctive functions 3

4 Parietal Lobes Perception of somatesthetic senses (touch, pressure, heat, cold, pain) Somatosensory cortex - postcentral gyrus of the central fissue Understanding language and formulating words Angular gyrus Interpretation of textures and shapes Somatosensory Cortex Receives info. from various parts of body Each region receives info. from specific body area (somatotopic) diff. parts of body are not equally represented hands and face have larger areas dedicated to processing of information receives info. from opposite side of body (decussation) Frontal Lobes Motor Cortex voluntary movement of skeletal muscle (motor cortex) personality higher intellectual processes planning, decision making verbal communication Broca s area- motor mechanisms for speech Precentral gyrus of the central fissue Controls voluntary movements of skeletal muscles Somatotopic More area dedicated to body regions movements requiring precise movements Decussation Temporal and Occipital Lobes Temporal Lobe auditory cortex perception and interpretation of auditory info storage of auditory and visual experiences Language comprehension (Wernicke s area) Occipital Lobe processing of visual information visual cortex interpretation of visual images motor activity of eyes correlation of images with previous visual experiences Insula Lobe Located beneath frontal and temporal lobes Functions Memory Sensory integration (pain) Cardiopulmonary responses to stress 4

5 Internal Grey Matter basal nuclei control of voluntary movements Inhibition activity for maintaining muscle tone Maintaining purposeful motor activity while suppressing unwanted activity Monitor/coordinate slow sustained contractions Gulf war syndrome degeneration of basal nuclei Internal Grey Matter limbic system Located around brainstem Portions of cerebrum and diencephalon Extensive collection with hypothalamus Relatively little connection with cerebral cortex basic survival behaviors (search for food, aggression, fear, sexuality) Emotion Goal-directed behavior (reward/punishment) Memory Perception of smell (olfactory cortex) Diencephalon Thalamus accepts sensory info. and sends it to cortex. Epithalamus - roof of third ventricle choroid plexus - produces cerebrospinal fluid pineal body - produces melatonin (reproduction, circadian rhythms) Hypothalamus motivational behavior hunger, thirst, body temperature, neural control of hormonal release form the pituitary gland Mesencephalon Located btw diencephalon and pons corpora quadrigemina, red nucleus, substantia nigra, cerebral peduncles visual reflexes auditory information relay motor coordination links cerebrum and cerebellum Parkinson s disease degeneration of the substantia nigra motivational (reward) behavior Metencephalon Pons interface for four pairs of cranial nerves control of respiration Cerebellum coordination of body movements, posture, balance Damage = jerky movements, difficulty walking Myelencephalon Medulla oblongata control of basal survival functions Cardiac Center regulates HR and contractile force Respiratory Center regulates respiration Vasomotor Center controls blood vessel diameter and blood pressure 5

6 Reticular Formation Interneurons in medulla, pons, midbrain, thalamus and hypothalamus receives and integrates incoming sensory info. relays sensory info. to the cerebral cortex nonspecific arousal of cerebrum 6
